God demonstrates his goodness in His love for me. God loves me so much, He gave His only Son to be sacrificed for me.
Now that is good news and that is real love.
What is my job then? I need to radically change how I think and act differently.
The Master does not delay as though He were unable to act and is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is extraordinarily patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to radically change their thinking (aka repentance). ~Peter | 2 Peter 3:9
God is patient. God is not slow. God wants us all to come to Jesus and be a part of the country if God where Jesus is King.That is the real deal. That is VERY good news.
Ultimately, God’s goodness is seen in His plan to redeem me from missing His goal (aka sin).
The gospel is “good news.” In His goodness, God sent His Son to become the perfect and blameless sacrifice so I could be forgiven of my sins.
God does not want “anyone to perish but everyone to come to radically change our thinking (aka repentance)” (2 Peter 3:9), and it is “the goodness of God that leads you to repentance” (Romans 2:4).
- Not only is God good, God is in a good mood. God does good. His love is grounded in goodness. As King David says about God, “You are good and do good; Teach me Your statutes.”
- Jesus challenges me to understand the scope of God’s goodness. “He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”
